Jamir, Welcome! and I appreciated your introduction.
I have to agree that I was intrigued when I heard at a District Convention a speaker harping about the dangers of apostacy, and the DO had the example of one sister who"as we say", learned the truth about the truth. The DO speaker said, this strong sister had her faith shipwrecked in one night after reading apostate literature and that several elders spent weeks trying to salvage her faith. This DO's talk just made me think, "if this is the truth, how can a 50 year witness veteran have her faith ruined in a few hours of reading apostate literature". My question was, "how can this "fortress of truth" be so fragile and suffer demolished devestation with a few hours of reading "apostate literature"? The truth was this fragile? The curiosity was compelling and I am out today. The house of cards had fallen. I would not say that this is what awakened me, but the constant droneing of beware of apostate thinking had the opposite affect on me of what I believe the speakers intent was. (Unless they are playing a mind game at a deeper level than I could imagine).
